Tuesday on The AIR we deliver new episodes of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift. In order to hear these great new musical treasures, you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and listen to this convenient embedded radio player…
We have a brand-new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday. This show kicks off with brand-new music from Stacee Lawson Stanley, and the rest of the first hour has new music from Sierra Ferrell, IDKHOW, Rockwell’s Ghost, The Empty Hearts and Todd Burge. Click on their names in the previous sentence to buy their music.
Stacee Lawson Stanley’s lovely new song is a new direction for her. RFC viewers may remember Stacee as the lead singer of the hard-rock band, Under Social, but this tribute to her late father has more of a country/Americana vibe. You can purchase this track on November 22, and look for a new album in 2021.
For our second and third hours this week, originally I had planned to do a full three-hour show. However, over the weekend I had a few emails from folks asking if I was planning to run the 2016 RFC Horror Theater International Halloween Special this year. To be honest, I wasn’t but since people asked for it (and nicely, too), I decided to incorporate it into this week’s episode of Radio Free Charleston V5. So stick around past the first hour if you want to hear your PopCulteer improvise two characters in one take, introducing spooky music for two hours.

At 1 PM we bring you an encore of last week’s new MIRRORBALL.
At 2 PM since Steven Allen Adams is still tied up covering some election or something that’s happening next week, we bring you an encore edition of NOISE BRIGADE .
At 3 PM our new hour of The Swing Shift shines a spotlight on five European Swing Bands, with three tunes each from Pink Turtle, The Monkey Swingers, Sugarpie and The Candymen, The Jive Aces and Lady J and her Bada Bing Band. These are all bands that were still active and touring before the pandemic hit, and I think that may explain why The Swing Shift has so many listeners in Europe. Check out this playlist:

Pink Turtle “Get Up, Stand Up”
“Nothing From Nothing”
The Monkey Swingers “It Ain’t Right”
Sugarpie and the Candymen “Bad”
